I purchased a faucet with integral Flex Hoses. One of the hoses is not long enough to reach the supply line.

The hose has a female thread swivel type fitting. Can I purchase a Male-Female extension or is there another simple way to make the Flex Hose reach?

Does the faucet side of the hose have a standard connection? If so, I'd get a longer hose to minimize the number of connections (each one being a potential leak location). – BMitch Aug 23 '13 at 13:45
I always end up with too much hose... – DMoore Aug 23 '13 at 20:01
Any big box store has various length hoses for faucets/toilets that range from I think 10" to 2'. – James Jul 24 '15 at 19:23

Sure, you can buy the extension flex. If I were you, I'd call the store where you bought the faucet, and they will probably have it in stock. This happens to a lot of people, but it's simple to correct
